New bus models 2017?

Post by wyth »

Great news is EFE is okay and a slow release programme will commence from December, this could signify aome TRUX buses could be produced as to my knowledge, they were produced at the same location as the rest of EFE.... Also, watch Oxford, theres rumours a modern bus is being considered, if its true, the new style mercedes city bus could appear and theres some in Brisbane.... wait and see, Oxfords news is January. Corgi new release of buses hasnt been announced for Jan to June yet. I wish someone on this forum had enough images of ex London AEC Merlins, Britbus has the casting and are open to commissions... as for 2017, I'd love the Sydney Leyland Panther or was it Leopord????

Quick question, what fire appliance is that seen in the first photo? And, is it still available for purchase anywhere? I'd love some details :)

just released by Oxford is theVolvo FH curtainside truck in the colours of COOPERS of Adelaide...... this was originally advertised as number 2 of the proposed range of trucks from TRUX of which only Victoria Bitter (VB) was only released....a range of up to 20 was proposed and only 1 was done, the Coopers one is available as a general release by Oxford now. I wonder if TRUX will ever do buses again.....

I purchased both of these models together from Trux shortly after they were advertised on the Trux website.
TR100A Scania - (VB).
TR100B Volvo - (Coopers).

I hope that one day the proposed range of range of twenty will be created and made available.
